NYC Morning


Once, In New York City near the Financial District, I turned around and saw this scene. Not quite. I saw people hustling their way through morning rush hour. The light was fine, but the motion was not. I went to a very old trick. I set the shutter speed for two seconds, and the fContinue reading “NYC Morning”

Old Stories


When I was very young, a boy, my parents thought it was a good idea for some of us to spend the summer in Brooklyn. We traded a balmy summer in Long Beach where The Pacific Ocean was just a few miles away for the hot and humid streets of South Brooklyn. We always tookContinue reading “Old Stories”

Brickyard Blues


We are headed to New Orleans. What? Already? No. It’s nothing good. A friend of ours just enter home hospice care. She’s been fighting cancer for four years. She’s so sick that she sleeps about 18 hours a day. When the home health care nurse arrived she couldn’t sit up to be examined. She doesn’tContinue reading “Brickyard Blues”

Over And Over


This photograph emerged from the fog of my archives. I’m pretty sure I didn’t select it for anything because of the way her arm is raised showing her arm pit. I was raised with certain rules. One is no up-the-nostril pictures. Another is no arm pit pictures. So, I tinkered with it. I modified theContinue reading “Over And Over”

The Game

I had a weird thought this morning that was preceded by a dream sometime early in the morning. It ocurred to me that I wasn’t pushing my work far enough orContinue reading

What The…


This picture is a mess. It started out okay, but I had “help” it. It got worse. Then, it got even more worst. Luckily, it turned even worster. Or, something like that. Seriously. This is an example of just about every editing technique not really working. I probably should have made a few small improvementsContinue reading “What The…”

Far Away


Mostly, I’m just playing and raking. Raking, you say? Yesterday there were all sorts of leaves on the trees. Red ones, orange ones and yellow ones. Today they are on the ground. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t have to rake the entire farm. We just had to rake the area where there in aContinue reading “Far Away”

Walking


One day I was walking through The Bywater, which is really a neighborhood in the 9th Ward, when I ran headlong into fall. Quickly, I pressed the button and bam, bam, bam, I made a picture. I turned around and went to The Bank of Soul, an art gallery owned by an old friend ofContinue reading “Walking”
